It is a Tecumseh compressor. I wasn't going to keep spending 30 bucks on oem parts every 3 months so this was a last $ 8.00 resort. If this hard start fails then the fridge is getting junked. New compressor is out of the question. I installed the urco410 for this compressor which I was told is 1/3 hp. Still running great. On borrowed time I'm sure.

The compressor tarted to quit every couple days and the overload would click. I would unplug it for an hour or two and it would work for up to a couple days before failing again. Finally installed the 3 n 1 hard start a week ago and it's been good. Thanks for the feedback.

So now the fridge has been working great, going on two days. Its pulling one amp at the compressor. So did the compressor get stuck on a flat spot and overheat temporarily? Is the relay compromised now from when it was clicking? When this happened a few months ago, the new start relay instantly fixed the problem. I'm wondering if I would have unplugged it for a few hours and fiddled with it, maybe it would have been ok like this time and the old relay wasn't even bad. What do you guys think. Is it Just a matter of short time before compressor fails? Is there a hard start relay that would be advised in this situation? Thanks for the feedback.

No, it was genuine I got it from the parts house out here.I told you I had this exact same problem with an upright Frigidaire freezer a few years back where I had to replace this relay every 5 months or so. Just thinking if there is a problem in the compressor with the winding or something it may not be worth it. the refrigerator is only about 9 years old.

I know the relay is failing, I just want to know why it is failing when I just replace it a few months ago. I will see what happens tomorrow. no clicking of the relay yet and compressor is still only pulling 1.2 amps and the air coming into the freezer is about 4 degrees. I will see what tomorrow brings. Just not too confident that it is going to correct itself all the sudden and be cured
